Bobby Shmurda’s label has his back, as Epic Records has decided to bail the rapper out of jail.
A lawyer for the rapper revealed that the legendary label would get him out of the jail as the 20-year-old faces a number of charges that include drugs, gun, attempted murder and murder.
Sha Money XL, the Epic executive that signed Shmurda, was present at the time of the arrest. He expressed his disenchantment with the whole ordeal and also cleared up some rumors.
“I was not arrested. They held me until they searched the studio then let me go. I signed these kids to give them a better way in life not to be dragged down by the media and gunned down by the 40 cops that raided the studio and pointed guns at me for working my job. You have no idea how this makes me feel or look when I’m one of the only few black men signing black artist from the streets and giving them a chance to do better in life.”
Dean Meminger, a reporter in the New York area, said there were multiple task forces working to bust Shmurda and company.
